Coastal Law Project

Oregon’s coast is the pride of the state, and a national treasure, but it is under immense threat from developers and resource extraction schemes. Several current development proposals could damage or destroy coastal wetlands, estuaries and rivers critical to native birds, fish and plants.

The Coastal Law Project – Investing in the future of the Oregon Coast

The Crag Law Center represents the Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition and local citizens through a collaborative partnership to ensure the coast’s natural environment remains pristine and accessible for years to come. Oregon Shores brings thirty years of experience in coastal conservation, while the Crag Law Center is contributing its expertise in advocacy and law to find solutions to these issues.
